Pemiscot Co. Sheriff's Office warns of bogus IRS calls

PEMISCOT COUNTY, MO (KFVS) - The Pemiscot County Sheriff's Office has received several calls from residents saying they have been contacted by a person claiming to be from the Internal Revenue Service claiming they owe back taxes or penalties. 

The calls are being generated in some cases from phone numbers that check to local police and sheriff's departments. There is an app available to generate bogus phone numbers to be displayed on caller IDs.
